RIP Norman Hollyn

To all of my colleagues’ heartbreak, Norman died unexpectedly last weekend while lecturing in Japan. The void he leaves is devastating. But the legacy he offers is extraordinary.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him, yet I was familiar with him and his works, most notably his book, The Lean Forward Moment: Telling Better Stories for Film, TV, and the Web and his lynda online course, The Art of Editing.

I was hoping to cross paths with him one day alas, he’s gone too soon.
